Sydney, Sep 25 (IANS) Australia’s depleted spin attack received another blow with Bryce McGain, frontrunner for the slow bowling berth in India, still recovering from a shoulder problem.Thirty-six-year-old McGain was injured during his time with Australia A earlier this month in India. Coach Tim Nielsen, however, is confident that he will get to the bowling crease in the next couple of days.

“Bryce is keen to have a bowl, but he got a little niggle in India with the A tour so we are just nursing him through the last stage of that rehab. He will get going in the next day or so and be ready to have a trundle,” Nielsen was quoted as saying in Sydney Morning Herald.

“Once he can get his first bowl over here, he’ll be a little more relaxed.”

McGain’s absence has put the spotlight on another unheralded tweaker, Jason Krejza. at the Rajasthan Cricket Academy in Jaipur, where the Australian team is practicing.
